This partner meeting of the California Improvement Network (CIN) aims to continue to establish network connections and build relationships among partners with the goal of accelerating the spread of innovation in care delivery. As the only network in California that brings together commercial and safety-net provider organizations, health plans, and quality improvement groups, CIN fosters valuable cross-sector relationships across the state.

This virtual meeting will focus on one of CIN’s priority areas for learning and action — addressing social needs that impact health — and is comprised of two connected events on Wednesday, January 13: A morning session from 10:00-12:00 PM and an afternoon session from 1:00-2:30 PM.

Keynote speaker Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH, chief medical officer of San Diego 211, will discuss the connections between race and health. Participants will learn a framework for addressing racism within health care organizations, gain tools for assessing efforts to address systemic racism to improve health, and explore how efforts to address social needs that impact health can more intentionally also address racism.

This CIN partner meeting will focus on the following objectives:

  • Continue to establish network connections and build relationships between partners
  • Increase knowledge, share current efforts, and identify action steps to make progress in the following CIN area for action and learning: Social needs that impact health

CIN is a project of the California Health Care Foundation, and is managed by Healthforce Center at the University of California, San Francisco
